When 12 Blocks become a Quilt Top

No the quilt isn't wearing sneakers! This weekend I trimed the blocks in navy, sashed them in cream and used the "keg" fabric for the corner stones. The inner border is brown with gold (like a tie print) and the outer border is browny/gold. I am so pleased with the way it turned out!

So is DH........

Tomorrow I hope to get to the quilt shop to buy some batting and on Wednesday I will shop for a sheet to use as the backing. I will look for something in blue to match the trim on the blocks as I will use the same fabric for the binding.

This is my first BIG quilt and I am so happy with how it is coming together!

I love the sampler quilt - I just commented to my Mom yesterday that I still want to make one one day.

I like the binding and sashing you have put on (a lot better than the purple table cloth Lol). The quilting will only make it better.

What a very nice quilt to give as a gift to your DH. My DH has yet to receive a special quilt from me.

So fun that you've started blogging more often. I did check out your blog from time to time, but I just recently discovered your new posts.
